Forum: movies Subject: Superman cartoons

I've noticed that both the "Feature Films" archive and the "Film Chest Vintage Cartoons" archive feature a number of the original 1940s Superman cartoons by Max Fleischer's studio. I love this series, and look forward to downloading them all.

However, each archive has different sizes of MPEG-2 file, and I was wondering if there was any other difference between the two in terms of quality e.g. digital remastering etc. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't compared SUPERMAN cartoons from the different sections of the archives, but I did notice that at least some of the versions in the FEATURE FILMS section are the ones "sweetened" a few years ago with new LOUD sound effects and very cleaned-up audio.

Yeah, I've had time to download a few now, and there's a definite difference in quality. The three cartoons in the Cartoon Archive are much sharper and brighter than their equivalents in the Film Archive, despite being a significantly smaller MPEG2 file.

It might be because, as I failed to notice the first time around, the stuff in the Cartoon Archive has been digitally remastered! Hopefully they'll add the rest of the Fleischer cartoons at the later date.
